Demand for 2 Demand for Airline Tickets During Fred Johnson’s military experience, he was intrigued about the frequency of airports overbooking its flights. During his many flights, he is often delayed because the airline is trying to get passengers to stay overnight or take a later flight because his plane has been overbooked.

The airport will purposely sell more tickets for a flight to ensure maximum capacity and to maximize their profit.
